    Re: Rhoads remains high on the future of Nigel Tribune

    He must have talent for Rhoads to play him as a true Freshman, but it sure seems like he gets beaten like a rented mule more often than not.

    I just remember hearing time and time again this August how good he looked in those closed scrimmages. He showed them something alright.

    Re: Rhoads remains high on the future of Nigel Tribune

    I like him a lot from what I have seen. I think he gets beat at times by guessing wrong or biting on the first move, which is something I have been seeing all over the field on defense this year with the youth.

    Re: Rhoads remains high on the future of Nigel Tribune

    Long as they keep his confidence up from the beaten mule thing, he seems like a guy that can work out.

    Re: Rhoads remains high on the future of Nigel Tribune

    Love what Tribune is going to bring as a player for us in the future, hate pulling his redshirt 3 games into the season.

    Trading 5/6 of a year of the worst football of his career for a year of what would be presumably his best year of his career.

    I don't blame the coaches for doing it, as losing the first two games obviously brings about more of a "win now" mentality, but the only positive that will come from this move is the in game experience Tribune gains for next year. The move would make a lot more sense and still can make a lot more sense, provided Tribune can be a major factor in actually getting some wins this year. If we rolled the dice on burning his redshirt in a lost season, I can't say I agree with the decision as someone who is a fan this year and will be a fan in 5 years no matter what.

    He played a decent amount against Iowa. UNI is the only game he didn't play this year.

    I thought since the Tech game he has looked really solid for a freshmen. He's already one of our best corners this year and will only get better.

    Personally, I think it's great he's playing. When an outside the trenches player is good enough to come in and start as a freshmen, you know you got a talented player. Leonard Johnson is a good example. Freshmen skill players start all across the country.

    Re: Rhoads remains high on the future of Nigel Tribune

    I have to be honest and some on here may not feel the same way but I absolutely loved when he took his man to the ground in the endzone and had to be separated. I don't remember the specifics of the play all I remember is thinking that if he wants to be successful in this league against the offenses we play, he is going to need some fire.

    That play showed it to me.

    Re: Rhoads remains high on the future of Nigel Tribune

    I liked when he got into it with the OSU WR after the BS PI call. I figured he would get flagged but he wasnt going to take any ****.

    Gosh, I must have already been buzzed, but I remember it just the opposite. Tribune got bulldozed into the ground by the OSU WR and got up ****** and ready to throw down.

    Re: Rhoads remains high on the future of Nigel Tribune

    I liked his textbook defense on a play against OKS. Going downhill at full speed, he turns back to face the ball and put himself between the ball and the defender--at just the right moment. Big improvement (listens to the coaches) over the TU game. Got called (wrongfully)for PI on the play, the Fox announcers (and crowd) were all over it.

    Re: Rhoads remains high on the future of Nigel Tribune

    I am excited for his future. He makes freshman mistakes. But he also makes good plays like on the bad PI call against him last weekend. The play before that he is all over an out route so they try an out & up and he is all over the out but still able to beat the WR deep. Will be a shut down corner one day.

    This is what I saw too. Impressive development considering that many of our upperclassmen in the secondary still struggle with playing the ball and not the receiver.

    I'm not looking at if he is good enough to start, I am looking at how much better he is than the next guy. The coaches themselves couldn't even list him as the outright #2 corner until I think the Baylor game. He was listed as an OR with Lynn.

    And the reason I don't like it is because he is so good. His RS Senior year would be valuable beyond what we are getting from him this year.

    The arguments for not RSing the guys like Knott, Klein, Lenz, ect are easy: They helped ISU win a bowl game their freshmen years. Hard to argue against that. But is it really worth it, especially in hindsight, for a 2-3 win season?

    I just don't see any benefits outside of experience for next year for Tribune, but I can't say I think that it outweighs the benefits you get from a 5th year.

    And again, I understand why the coaches get it. They coach for this year and not for 5 years down the road. They don't want to get fired. But that isn't necessarily what is best for a fan in 5 years when you are going to be a fan either way.
